The hype train rolls on as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) inches closer to its next pay-per-view (PPV) offering, UFC 217: “Bisping vs. St-Pierre,” which takes place inside historic Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sat., Nov. 4, 2017.
Part of said hype is the “Embedded” video blog series and you can check out episode two above.
The main event features a middleweight title fight between reigning division champion Michael Bisping and former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre. It will be the French-Canadian’s first fight in over four years, while the previously injured “Count” looks to (finally) defend his title for the second time by knocking off another former titleholder.
In the co-main event, Cody Garbrandt will defend his bantamweight belt against former training partner T.J. Dillashaw, while Joanna Jedrzejczyk puts her women’s strawweight strap on the line against Rose Namajunas.
